Rockaway Beach and the adjacent part of Pacifica is great as a jumping off point for a hike across to Mori point. It seems like a safe place to park. Parked here many times and never had problems. Beach area here is great for some photos.

We like to try beaches with unique sand, this one is up there. The Chocolate brown sand is very different, still soft to walk in. It was fun to watch the surfers too.

This is truly a lovely beach. This was my first time in Pacifica and I was impressed with the shoreline. Such a treasure, much used and beloved.

We went to Rockaway Beach in Pacific. We had a good time and views of the Pacific Ocean are nice. There are some stores, cares, and lodging also in this are.

My family and I stopped here while driving along the coast out of San Fran.
There is a restaurant and hotel right on the beach - not the greatest for natural setting

Views are nice but the beach is very rocky unless you walk south.

Loved it, loved the sandy beach and the rocks and the waves. Very relaxing and great to listen to at night.

Nice little beach. Hard to access though and there's not much to it, but it's still scenic. The shops and restaurants are around it are nice, too.

My first time here. Nothing great about it. The sand is dark grey or almost black and sticks to everything. Not dry and loose. Probably will not go back

I've been visiting Rockaway Beach for years. Sometimes with a group, sometimes for a wander by myself. Always worth the visit! The restaurants and cute little shops nearby are a bonus, and worth checking out.
